American reality television star Kim Kardashian has reportedly appeared in public for the first time since giving birth to her daughter, North West. The 32-year-old model/actress and star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was seen trying to travel undercover in her nanny's car, out in southern California.

"As for the baby, Kim and her helper kept a blanket over North's car seat so nobody could catch a glimpse," the source added, according to the Mail Online.

In a report by Radar Online, a fan who claims to have seen the new mother and her daughter, said: "Kim looks amazing, she really does. She's dropped a lot of the baby weight already...not to say she still doesn't have a ways to go, but she looked slim and was glowing."

Meanwhile, celebrity photographers and enthusiasts continue to wait for the first photographs of North West Kardashian. Kim and beau Kanye West, the parents, are believed to have turned down a $3m photo-op deal from an unidentified Australian magazine.

"Kanye's been adamant about not having the baby on the show. He was serious when he said North isn't America's baby, so he may not do anything," a source close to the family said.

Kim Kardashian may feel a little different though, according to the Mail Online report, which quotes another source as saying: "Kim is excited to have the whole world see her baby, she is saying that she knows that everyone will love her as much as she does and she wants people to see how beautiful she is."

The baby, already a celebrity, was introduced to her family earlier this month, during an Independence Day party on 4 July at the clan's Malibu beach house.

"Kim has taken North on a few play dates, but she can't do it with lots of people since she's still so small," a source told Us magazine, "They are both so in love with their little girl. He [Kanye West] doesn't leave North for more than an hour."
